Original Birthday gift: DIY bookmarks
Children made original bookmarks. This craft is suitable for children from two years old. We used crayons (wax), watercolors and cork stamps. In this article you will find instructions on how to make bookmarks.
DIY Bookmarks as a gift
Our bookmarks were a gift for dad. He loves them. 🙂
Suitable for: 2+ years old
This craft is suitable for toddles as well as preschoolers.
All you need
- Water colours
- Crayons (wax)
- Stamps (cork stamps)
- Self adhesive foil or laminator
How to do it
Kids drew crayons on paper (A5). Martin made small wheels, Filip drew what he thought. Then they painted paper by the bright watercolors. Finally, it was decorated with cork stamps.
When the picture had dried, I put it in between two heavier objects to make straight. I folded the paper in half and glued the two halves together. I stuck a transparent foil on it and decorated it by decorative cotton.
Making bookmarks is easy and children can draw on their own imagination on paper.
I wish you a lot of fun. 🙂
